Humor me on this one. I read the first five of this 11-part series as a kid and never knew that another six books were written (in the 60s). I recently bought five of the books and I've been poking around the internet for over a year to find this one for less than 100 bucks (unbelievable). Finally. I found this on Abe and ordered away. Its so satisfying to read the last one in the series! Definitely for ballet-lovers only, but Estoril does a nice job of painting a picture of the jealousy and cat ...more

I had not read the Drina books since I was a child and I recently re-read them all. I read the first 5 as a child and then as a teen I hunted down the final 6 once I realized they existed. I am happy to say that for the most part they hold up to the test of time. They are very much in the style of British school stories but I quite like those. I think the whole series is definitely worth the effort it takes to hunt them down.

This has got to be one of my favourite books from the whole series. It starts with Drina and her friends saying goodbye to the old Dominick building and getting used to the new one in Euston Road. A friend of hers then finds out she is Ivory's daughter and the whole story comes out. This has repecussions within the whole school and of course the media finds out about it.

During her first term as a senior student she along with Rose, Queenie and Jan dances on tour with the Dominick due to other m
My second favourite, after Drina Dances in Exile. Also, oddly enough, the ONE my library didn't have! While I read the others countless times as a kid, this second-last I didn't even find until I was 21. It was certainly worth the wait and a really interesting story, with Drina naturally older than at the start of the series - and off touring up north now, and making nice with Queenie of all people! o.O Quite a touching little interlude there.

The penultimate book of the series and one of the best.

Drina has a baptism of fire with her 1st tour as a member of the company...but it has one good result...friendlier relations with Queenie Rothington than she would have ever thought possible!

Then the best thing ever happens....Grant reappears!

Wow, these are pretty terrible upon reread, but how I devoured them growing up! I should probably track down Drina Ballerina just for completeness's sake, but the last time I checked used book sites a few years ago, copies were going for over a hundred dollars, which is not ideal.
